Candy Cane poem (*Tie a poem on a candy cane*)

Jesus Gentle Shepherd, this cane of red & white,
Proclaims a sweet love story, born on Christmas night.
This cane, you see, when turned around, begins your name of love,
And now becomes a symbol of peace proclaimed above.
The lively peppermint flavor is the regal gift of spice.
The white is your purity, the red your sacrifice.
And so this cane reminds us of just how much you care,
And like your Christmas gift to us, it's meant for all to share.

A significant symbol of Christmas
Is the simple candy cane.
It's shape is the crook of the Shepherd
One of the first who came.
The lively peppermint flavor is
The regal gift of spice.
The White is Jesus' purity.
The Red is sacrifice.
The narrow stripes are friendship.
And the nearness of his love.
Eternal, Sweet Compassion
A gift from God above.
The Candy Cane reminds us all of how much God cared.
And like His Christmas gift to use
It's meant to be broken and shared.
